For everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven......
As I sit to write this post, so many thoughts are entering my mind. I have had the best time sharing and playing with my MM Design Team sisters. I have learned from them, laughed with them, cried with them and shared much of my life with them as they have with me. We have become a sort of family if you will. It is with a heavy heart that I am ending this journey with them and stepping down from the team. This week will be my last DT card for Midnight Madness. I will treasure every moment that I have spent on this amazing team with so many amazing women, but I have come to a time that I am needed much more here at home and with my family. I do not have the time to dedicate as I should to be an active member of a Design Team anymore. My husband just returned home from being away on a job assignment for a year, and we need to get our lives back to the way they were and also get many things done to prepare our house for selling....not to mention most importantly my kids. We are coming up on summer and the outdoors will be calling us. We want to do more active things with our kids and to also give them the attention and care that they need in all areas. I have to have this as my main focus.
I will by no means be leaving altogether. I love crafting and I love my blogging friends, but I will say that there may be longer stretches between posts. Maybe along the way though, I may let you in on a little bit of what life is offering me too, so my posts may not all be craft related. Please do stay with me, and we can venture into not necessarily a new journey for me, but rather combining what has always been there...my love for my family and my home....and my love for crafting.
Now, I would like to present to you my final MMDT card.....A tribute to Priscilla and the team.... I used Priscilla's digi birds and some Martha Stewart punched butterflies to gracefully flutter around this lovely friendship poem that expresses what I feel for my DT sisters and family. I hope you enjoy my creation and that you will consider giving this sketch a try as well. I would love to come visit you and see your interpretation of this week's sketch.
The envelope box was made with Priscilla's envelope kit that you can find here.

Now, my sweet friends, it is time that I must say goodbye and a huge THANK YOU to my team mates. I hope to visit them every chance I can get to see what they grace this blog world with...and what they inspire all of us with. Perhaps, we will all come together again at some time. I won't say goodbye to the rest of you, as I do hope to continue to drop in and catch up from time to time. Enjoy life and take each opportunity as it comes.
"I shall pass through this world but once.
Any good, therefore, that I can show to any human being,
let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again."
May many blessings be showered upon you my friends.
